New UH Sociology Course Focused on Writings of Malcolm Gladwell
by BWW News Desk - Sep 4, 2014

Who and what is a sociologist? A new undergraduate course taught by Shayne Lee, associate professor of sociology at the University of Houston, will focus on the Writings of journalist and best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell in order to delve into the nature of the scientific study of human social relationships and institutions through the lens of popular culture consumption. Gladwell, a staff writer at 'The New Yorker' since 1996, is the author five 'New York Times' best-seller books: 'The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference', 'Blink: The Power of Thinking without Thinking', 'Outliers: The Story of Success', 'What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures' and his most recent book, 'David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants.' He has increased his popularity beyond the mass consumption of his books through savvy use of social media and connection with the nonprofit TED, which produces the now ubiquitous TED Talks videos and annual conferences that can turn academics into social media superstars. TED describes Gladwell as a 'detective of fads and emerging subcultures, chronicler of jobs-you-never-knew-existed, Malcolm Gladwell's work is toppling the popular understanding of bias, crime, food, marketing, race, consumers and intelligence.' Lee says Gladwell's ability to shape and redirect popular understanding of sociology concepts makes his work an excellent framework for exploring how human action and consciousness shape and are shaped by cultural and social structures. 'Students will assess how the 'Gladwellian' perspective confirms and challenges established social theories and offers intriguing new insights for the discipline of sociology,' said Lee. 'It places the contributions of a pop cultural superstar like Gladwell in conversation with prominent sociologists of the past and present, posing new questions concerning who and what is a sociologist.' Lee notes the goal of sociology as a discipline is to go beyond assumptions about life to form theories and insights based on a more critical evaluation of human conditions. That goal is similar to how Gladwell uses scientific research to dispel well accepted assumptions or to start a new conversation on other ways to think about how humans engage in their social surroundings. He said Gladwell's book, 'Outliers,' is the best example of the writer's skill at inspiring others to think more critically about social realities. 'Most people are curious about how or why certain people achieve extraordinary levels of success while others fall short. In the case of 'Outliers,' Gladwell paints a complex picture of how people achieve success,' Lee said. 'On the one hand, he emphasizes how agency and culture play crucial roles in providing people with tools to advance in their pursuits. In this way, he explores how hard work, good communication skills, strategic planning and other crucial factors can make or break opportunities for success. 'He uses scientific data collected by leading social scientists and intriguing stories throughout the book to present a complex picture of how the achievement of success cannot be reduced to a simple formula. So students then are able to see how scientific research can be relevant toward seeing how the world works and in understanding their place in that world.' Lee was inspired to design the course, 'Malcolm Gladwell's Sociology,' after he assigned 'Outliers' in other courses and several students told him the book had 'changed their lives.' 'Scholar texts don't have nearly the same impact on teaching students to think more sociologically than 'Outliers,' said Lee. 'Hence, it is my contention that Gladwell's works make people more informed about the nuances and complexities of the human condition.' About the University of Houston The University of Houston is a Carnegie-designated Tier One public research university recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the nation's best colleges for undergraduate education. UH serves the globally competitive Houston and Gulf Coast Region by providing world-class faculty, experiential learning and strategic industry partnerships.

Dominique Lévy Gallery Presents ROMAN OPALKA: PAINTING, 9/4-10/18
by BWW News Desk - Aug 18, 2014

In 1965, French-born Polish artist Roman Opalka picked up a delicate No. 0 brush in his Warsaw studio and placed the number “1” at the top left- hand corner of a canvas. With this gesture began an enterprise later titled 1965 / 1 – ?, that would consume the rest of the artist's career in a determined but deliberately quixotic quest to paint every number to infinity. By the time of his death, Roman Opalka had placed more than five million numerals on 233 canvases and made unblinking photographs of his face each day in front of the work. The artist's numbers increased as his body deteriorated, and together these inverse phenomena – the overlapping fates of body and soul – yielded an unstinting visual diary of one man'ssimultaneous rage against and embrace of the mortal conundrum. Viewing that diary reveals the philosophical daring behind Opalka's discipline, the poignancy in his strategically dry but ultimately breathtaking search for the sublime within the methodology of his counting. Today, Roman Opalka's 1965 / 1 – ? stands as one of modern art's most powerful and poetic inquiries into the mutability of time and the spirit's response to it. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Bronx Museum, Sze It Now and Burcaw's Street Mural
by Barry Kostrinsky - Aug 18, 2014

Hop on the 4 or the D train and travel north young men and woman to see art in the South Bronx. No, that's not a typo, I did not mean to say go see the Yankees. Like many inner cities including Detroit, the Bronx is best known for high crime, poor health condition and low test scores; However these inner cities are also the breeding ground for countless innovative film makers, music makers, visual artists and thought provoking thinkers. The why and how the tough conditions of these neighborhoods breeds an aesthetic flourishing is perplexing to figure out. (more...)

Colin Fletcher Releases 'I Am Not African American'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2014

Colin is proud to offer his debut work which represents his personal journey towards understanding his own identity, 'I am not African American' is already available on Amazon.com and Kindle and will be hitting bookstores everywhere very soon. 'I am not African American' is an informative explanation outlining the plight of black Americans throughout the history of the United States. It focuses on how black Americans have been lumped together without differentiation for their unique ethnic origins. In particular, Colin clarifies who black Americans of slave origins are, presently labeled as, for lack of a better term, African Americans, and why they are different from the other blacks who immigrated to America. He examines how their unique history of persecution and oppression has resulted in all blacks, for that matter, all people of color, are frequently treated as non-Americans. But also, Colin further emphasizes what important roles many black Americans have played in the history of this great nation. By specifically focusing on the speeches and Writings of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 'I am not African American' illuminates the fact that Dr. King's dream of seeing all Americans aspire to reach the Mountaintop can never be fulfilled if we do not understand and acknowledge the long journey African Americans have taken towards making this nation a 'more perfect union.' Only through their achievement will America be able to live up to its creed of 'All men are created equal...' Being a Jamaican American allows Colin to view race relations from a different perspective. He understands the necessity for unity against those who tried to oppress; however, through his own life experiences believes that we as a nation have reached a moment in our history where without proper delineation, our children will never be 'judged by the content of their character.' They will continue to struggle against those who believe that America is simply a place which can only be represented by a single face. (more...)
